There was one thing this Christmas gone by that was at the top of my Father Christmas’s ‘wish list’ and that I was hoping come Christmas morning would be adorning my stocking. This wish was for candles. They instantly make a room warm and cosy whilst creating a lovely fragrance that emanates around the space. Living away from home means you can miss out on things like this and little touches such as candles and pictures frames that can help make an area feel more like home. Not just that, if your housemate ever decides to cook a suspecting smelling curry a scented candle will do a great job of dispersing the questionable whiff! Luckily for me Father Christmas heard my wish and graced me with the Rituals Sweet Sunrise Scented Candle.
Rituals are a brand I got introduced to by the Glossybox Christmas box one year as it included the Yogi Flow Shower Foam. It smelt divine, lathered up a beaut and got my Mum and myself hooked on the brand. Also, they have a store in Westfields Shepherds Bush which my Mum is forever walking past/sneaking in to. They have a great range of home, bath, shower and even skincare and makeup goodies that are pretty reasonably priced and smell ah-mazing! The Sweet Sunrise Candle contains Sweet Orange and Cedar Wood and it is a really fresh fragrance. I’ve taken a whiff of all the much loved Diptyque candles and there isn’t one (yet) that I have fallen head over heals for. This Rituals Candle however I have and with it holding 50 hours of burning time I know it’s sweet scent will be around for many more days to come.
